The revision and scaling up of the Emissions Trading System (ETS) to cover a broader array of sectors is a key element of the “Fit for 55” package. In particular, the proposal to establish a new ETS for buildings has sparked both interest and concern.

This second ETS Talks aims to shed light on the opportunities and challenges this extension represents, exploring not only how ETS revenues can be used to advance the renovation of buildings, but also how, if not carefully thought out, the ETS for buildings might fall short to delivering a socially fair and just climate transition.

This ETS TALK is part of a series of meetings (upon invitation) organised within the LIFE ETX project to share knowledge and best practices and discuss carbon pricing policymaking processes among a wide group of stakeholders.
